I always enjoyed the Bunter books since the 1950's and was very impressed by the TV series starring Gerald Campion, who was the perfect Bunter. Kynaston Reeves was great as Quelch, in spite of fluffing his lines.

Amazing how the author wrote so many books/stories. I understand he was in the Guinness Book of Records, for writing so many.
I still read them occasionally, in my 70's as they're good stories and still laugh at some of the humour.
